5 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him


Valentine’s Day is coming up (how did that happen!?) and time for us to start figuring out what to buy our other halves, but also making sure their gifts don’t seem half-arsed or impersonal. So, I scoured the net and found 5 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas that are special enough for that special man in your life.

A personalised wallet

My husband walked around with a tattered wallet for years before I decided he needed to say goodbye to it forever. So, I went on the hunt for a decent wallet that would house his cards, notes and coins. I thought it would take me minutes, but it turned out to be a selection headache, due to the sheer volume of wallets available online. So, I decided to find a personalised service and stumbled upon an online company called Farrar & Tanner, which offers an impressive selection of high-quality personalised wallets. I decided on the Personalised Dark Brown Barbour Wallet with Coin Holder, which looks so smart and ticks all the boxes. It also came in a gift box, so you just need to wrap and go.

Boots are made for walking

Your man is up and about all the time, so buying him a nice pair of boots made for walking to work, dropping the kids to school/activities and going on great dates (with you of course) would seem the ideal and practical choice for Valentine’s Day. Jacamo have a great selection of boots made just for walking and that’s just what they’ll do!

Give him the gift of experience that you both can enjoy

How many dates have you been on together without the kids? A lot? Not enough? None at all? Then why don’t you double up your Valentine’s gift and buy an experience that both of you can enjoy together? Great ideas include a Wine Tasting Break for Two, a MAC Photoshoot for Two, so you can immortalise your experience, or a Log Cabin Break for Two. It’s much needed time for you two to rekindle that flame, especially when the kids have taken up so much of your time, and let your hair down for once!

Keep your man looking trim

Keep your man trim and looking good with a shaving /grooming kit. My husband spends ages working on his beard and he shaves his head every other day. So, the Braun Series 7 Electric Shaver with Travel Case would be the perfect gift for him, as he’ll make full use of it.

A day without the kids

You don’t have to always buy gifts on Valentine’s Day. Ship the kids off to the grandparents or hire a babysitter and take the day together. You could stroll along the park, go to the cinema, enjoy a nice meal together or even stay indoors by yourselves and just be together. The point is to claw back that time that made you a couple before kids came along and dashed your chance of any together time.

Whatever your choice, make sure it comes from the heart and I’m sure he’ll love it.

Good luck!
